Not really. You'll notice the Other One Lemieux played still has a huge cut.
It's likely the missing portion is on Bear's duplicate cassette, though. I'm still hoping a tape with the complete 4/23 Caution will be found... The uncut Stephen>Sin was a nice find, but I'd like the uncut jam!

That was my big hope when the "yard sale tape" of 4/23 came out. Honestly I could have cared less about the missing Stephen>It's a Sin portion, I was way more interested in a patch for the fantastic alligator/eleven/caution sequence. Hopefully it's out there, or at least part of it is...? On a related note, I'm wondering how they handled the cuts/patches/source changes we've known on all of our previous copies of 5/24 and 25/69? Perhaps they aren't there in the vault reels? I'm anxious to hear how it all sounds.

I have heard it said that the Ark and the Tea Party were the same venue? Maybe it wasn't those two, but I'm pretty sure it was in Boston. Wasn't there like an old supermarket that got turned into a concert venue? Is that the same place? I wish I could remember where I read all that.

Boston did have a theater called the Psychedelic Supermarket, which was converted from a parking garage, and was not very popular.
As one reviewer said, "During the day it was a garage parking lot; at night the bottom floor was the club. It's hard to believe now that it even existed. There was nothing psychedelic about it, unless you hallucinated from inhaling oil and gas fumes."

The Boston Tea Party was the most successful dance hall in town from '67-70. The Ark was a very short-lived competitor that flopped in '69, and the Tea Party moved into their space.

The Dead played the Psychedelic Supermarket in December '67 - but what's really tantalizing is their three-night run at the Tea Party in October '69 - of which we have not a trace. Considering what the April and December '69 runs were like, it must have been pretty good...

Thanks for clearing that up. As for "but what's really tantalizing is their three-night run at the Tea Party in October '69 - of which we have not a trace. Considering what the April and December '69 runs were like, it must have been pretty good..."

I bet...sure would love to hear that. Only in dreams.

Only on Bear's tapes, that is. There is a chance...
People don't often realize, but over 30 shows from 1969 are missing from circulation. Yet Latvala & Lemieux have both said that most of the year is still in the Vault.

It is strange, though, that we have not a single SBD from late Sep/early Oct '69...
